Editorial Reviews

Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
*** The scenes between the old man and the teenager are at the heart of the movie, and it's a pleasure to watch the rapport between Connery, in his 50th year of acting, and Brown, in his first role.... I was reminded of another movie, a great one, named "The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner" (1962). In both that movie and this one, a disadvantaged young man simply refuses to perform like a trained seal, because he knows that will be a lethal blow against his adult tormentors. In a movie where sports supplies an important theme, Jamal's crucial decision supplies the best insight in the story about his journey between two worlds.

    Chemistry, Starpower shine through

    Sean Connery, arguably one of this century's finest actors, as the reclusive novelist, William Forrester, is a rare cinematic treat. Rob Brown is engaging as Jamal Warner, Forrester's gifted protege. This movie Is, most definitely, worth a look.

    Sean Connery and Rob Brown are great

    I think that this movie is seriously one of the greatest of all time. Sean Connery plays an awesome hermit, he fits the intellect role very well. I think that this movie should be a requirement to watch, it's just that good.

    There Should Be More Movies Like These...

    ''Finding Forrester'' is an excellent movie to watch anytime, anywhere....the story of an unlikely friendship that develops captivated me the first time I watched it (which was not too long ago).....this will be the first DVD I buy (I just learned how to work my DVD player on my computer).....this movie should also make people think about how we should not judge each other by the color of our skin, whether Black, White, Latino, Indian, Asian, Philipino, or any other background....I hope to see more of Rob Brown in the future....if not, then this is a one of a kind movie that everyone should own...God Bless..
